Taylor Swift CMA Entertainer Of The Year Award [Video]
Taylor Swift has, for the second year in a row, was awarded the coveted entertainer of the year award at the 47th annual Academy of Country Music Awards held Sunday in Las Vegas, Nevada. After being saluted for her charity work on The Kids’ Choice Awards by Michelle Obama and finding out that her cancer-stricken date, Kevin McGuire, was too sick to accompany her to the ACM Awards show, Swift has certainly had an eventful weekend.
Swift took a moment while on stage receiving her award to throw a greeting towards Kevin McGuire and his family as she had promised the high school football player she would. She was quoted as having said:
“He’s not here but I promised him I would give him a shout-out.”
Country music star Taylor Swift’s second CMA entertainer of the year award ranks the 22-year-old musician alongside the likes of Carrie Underwood, who was the only other woman to also receive the entertainer of the year award not once, but twice.
The ACM award for entertainer of the year is decided by fans who cast votes in order to choose the winner. After thanking her fans who voted for her, Swift went onto say:
“I’m so happy about this. I want to say to my fellow nominees in this category I respect you so much and I love you.”
Not quite the spectacle we all witnessed when Kanye West rudely interrupted Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMA’s), but it was an eventful evening at this year’s 47th Country Music Awards show nonetheless.
